Format: Taschenbuch
This trilogy (Magic's Pawn, Magic's Promise, Magic's Price) is one of my very favorites. Magic's Promise takes Vanyel through his adolecent stage, from rebelling against his family (who really need rebelling against!), to discovering his true love, to discovering his own power, through great pain and hardship. Vanyel endures more than anyone should have to endure. This is one of those books that keep you awake at night because you NEED TO KNOW what happens next!
The book is set in the same universe as the Arrows Trilogy, Winds trilogy, and Owls trilogy, but about a thousand years earlier. It's a good idea to read these books BEFORE you read the Winds trilogy, and I won't spoil it by telling you why.
I would recommend this book to adults, but also to teenagers who are struggling with their own identity. I believe it won an award from a gay and lesbian literary society, because of its wonderful portrayal of both straight and gay loving relationships.

I am not a fan of Lackey at all. I have rarely enjoyed her books, and am not particularly intrigued by the world of Valdemar.
However, this is a phenomenal trilogy! It was impossible for me to put any of the three down until they were completely, fully and totally consumed.
I bought this trilogy back in 1991, and have re-read it every year or so since. It's a profound love story, full of characters you can almost touch and feel, and definitely sympathise and relate to. Vanyel is a young boy with no latent magical abilities whatsoever, until a niaive sacrifice for his "soul-mate" results in a backwash making him one of the world's most powerful mages, but at a devastating price (and we're not talking just the death of his lover here, folks!).
For those who think this is a gay love story, you cannot be more wrong. Vanyel is an unlikely hero who just happens to be homosexual, and the casual way Lackey handles his sexual preference should be inspirational to anyone, straight or gay. Actually, the fact that Vanyel's homosexuality is such a very small and very private part of his life when compared to his other attributes and his duties leads me to think perhaps the gay community has more to learn from his example than any other segment. He's not out to prove anything, or to impress or shock anyone. He simply wants to be accepted, himself alone, and to be allowed to pursue happiness in his own private way.
There are some inconsistencies throughout the series, but one won't notice them unless you are particularly observant and/or frequently re-read the trilogy (which you probably will).
All in all, very high in my list of fantasy favorites.

I must confess, I originally bought this book because I liked the cover illustration; it was intriguing without being overstated. When I finished the book, a tissue box and two chocolate bars later, I realized that I had stumbled upon one the most poignant, engrossing stories I have ever read of any book genre. Mercedes Lackey is unapologetic in her portrayal of a young gay teen whose destiny is forged without his consent. Vanyel Askevron, the reluctant heir to Forst Reach, is misunderstood and disliked by his family (save his sister, Lissa). After a run-in with the weaponsmaster of the keep, he is sent to Haven, Valdemar's capital, to live with his Mage-gifted Aunt Savil. While there he discovers friendship, as well as the true meaning of love and pain...and he must learn to cope with the magic inside himself, or else become Magic's Pawn. Mercedes Lackey has written a riveting tale of sorrow and triumph, of love found and lost, of happiness and poignancy--in other words, Lackey has written a story that anyone, gay or straight, can relate to without difficulty. It is a must read, whether you are into fantasy fiction or not

My Godmother, a very wise woman, gave me this book years ago. I read it in one sitting and then read it to my husband. This book is incredible. It is an excellent story whether you like action, romance, or tragedy. But more amazing is that it provides solace and teaches. Similar to many other reviewers, I read this book while going through a difficult time in my life. Even though my problems did not coincide with Vanyel's difficulties, his introspection and the Savil's wisdom helped me learn to trust myself. I gave this book to a friend going through an even more difficult time and she was comforted by this series as well. Peruse the reviews and see how many people have learned or were comforted by this book and the rest of the series. Mercedes Lackey has an incredible insight into the souls of humans. The story of Vanyel is a wonderful story in any event. I have never met a person who read this story and did not enjoy it. My husband did not to read it at first because of the homosexual relationships. Long before the end of the story he was cheering Vanyel on and yelling, "Kiss him!"

I don't want to sound melodramatic, but no other book has had as much an effect on my life as this one. During my freshman year of college, at the age of fourteen, a friend of mine recomended this book. It was one of the first positive portrayals of homosexuality that I had encountered and I identified strongly with the main character, Vanyel. Like him, I knew I was different, but couldn't figure out how. As he discovered that he was gay, I realized I was a lesbian. And as he fell in love with his roommate, I fell in love with mine. I can't tell you what it was like to feel that I was not alone, to see someone else (even if it was a fictional character) having the same experiences as me. This book helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my life. It has become like an old friend. I've re-read it many times, and as I grow older and have new experiences, I gain new perspective and insights into it. Every time I read it, it's like coming home again. And, I'd like to note, that my own story has a happy ending. My roommate, now lover, and I have shared six wonderful years together.
